Windows Driver Frameworks
The Windows Driver Frameworks (WDF) are a set of libraries that make it simple to write high-quality device drivers.
Use the samples in this repo to guide your Windows driver development. Whether you're just getting started or porting an older driver to the newest version of Windows, code samples are valuable guides on how to write drivers.
For information about important changes that need to be made to the WDK sample drivers before releasing device drivers based on the sample code, see the following topic:
